Teamcity installation and TFS integration

We are currently evaluating TeamCIty (we license several other Jetbrains products such as Resharper and IntelliJ).  I have installed the current build on a Windows system with all the default settings.  When we go to connect TeamCity to our existing TFS 2008 system, we get the following error:

Connection failed! TFS failed. ExitCode: -1, Stdout:: TFS Native Verifier v7.0 Copyright (C) 2006-2011 JetBrains s.r.o.
ERROR - No TFS assemblies were found on the system. Please make sure you have Microsoft Team Explorer 8.0, 9.0 or 10.0 installed
, Stderr::

Any insight you can provide would be appreciated.

Hi

Sorry for late reply.

TeamCity uses TFS client tools to access Team Foundation repositories. So you need them installed on a computer where TeamCity server is running.

Blake, did you ever get this sorted? I have the same issue (like you, doing an evaluation of TeamCity) and cant find the Team Explorer download...

Do you have a link to the TFS Client Tools download please?

I believe all you need is the Team Foundation 'Explorer' - it's a plug-in for VS but will run standalone as well

The link for the 2012 version is:  http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30656

Team City uses this as an interface to the remote TFS server
